Using CHAMACOS Data and Archived Samples
The CHAMACOS Study is a longitudinal cohort study of more than 900 mother-child pairs living in a California farmworker community. The goal of CHAMACOS is to determine how early life exposures to environmental chemicals (including pesticides, endocrine disruptors, and air pollutants) and psychosocial factors (including early life stressors and resiliency factors) impact the health, growth, and development of children. The CHAMACOS participants have been followed for 21 years and detailed information has been collected on both mothers and children.
The rich data collected by the CHAMACOS Study offers a unique opportunity to explore multiple additional research questions. Investigators that are interested in using the CHAMACOS data are encouraged to learn more about the study and submit a proposal to receive permission to work with the data.
